Have you ever used a portable, compact, travel-sized CPAP unit?


#1

The very small travel CPAPs hit the industry a few years back. Have you used one?


#2

Thanks for asking this! I’m thinking of getting one of the smaller units for travel and look forward to seeing any responses to this.

Thanks for the reply, RobinSez! I too am curious to hear if people are enjoying them. I was assigned an article regarding portable CPAP units, so have learned a lot from doing my research. One of them I looked at even uses solar power!! For campers and frequent travelers, I would think they are really enjoying their freedom! We’ve come a long way, Baby :blush:

I am interested in hearing from patients who have used the small travel units who require humidification and high pressures. Do they really work well for this patient population?
I use bilevel at 20-11 and REQUIRE heated humidification.


#5

My oxygen concentrator is set at 15, and I use a bi-pap so NO SMALL SIZE ANYTHING FOR ME.


#6

New technology is so good, heck, my bilevel is small enough to fit in my briefcase when I travel, so I will just think of it as a travel size machine. No complaints here!


#7

I’ve never tried one but it certainly would be a lot easier than packing the one I have when I travel. Any recommendations on the best one to buy?
